Color of tapestry

This is an image took on Kachama art tapestry whose collection of works I shot for years, as well as for her collector's book.  This one is recent work, shot with Phase One P65+ on Hasselblad H2 camera, with HC Macro 120/4.  The original artwork is often in the size of 1-1.2 meter wide, and from 2-3 all the way to more than 20 meters long, usually collected by gallery, airport, hotel and some private collectors.  Each tapestry can take weeks to months to complete, and Kachama herself works her life into her unique vision of weaving.  It is really a pity the limitation of computer screen capable resolve such beautiful work in blogspot.
